10:40 pm
well, team sky have come out here to majorca to try to focus on the season ahead, but they know their reputation, especially that of their boss, is now under scrutiny. it's regrettable i think but, equally, over the test of time is the key thing and i think over time we'll continue to perform at the highest level. but tensions are starting to appear. last week, tour de france champion, chris froome conspicuously failed to offer brailsford his backing. do you still feel you have his support? i'm confident that we're going to go to the tour de france this year and give it absolutely the best shot. that's not the question i asked, do you feel you have his support? like i say, i'm proud of what i'm doing and i'm confident that we're going to go forward and do all the right things to make sure we win the right races this year, and that's what we're going to do. have you considered resigning, at any point? i'm proud of what i've done, i've been doing this a long time. you know, i've been doing it for 20 years and i'm very much focused on the season coming ahead.
10:41 pm
brailsford insists there's been no wrong—doing, but admits the current process is uncomfortable. restoring his team's reputation could be another uphill struggle. andy swiss, bbc news, majorca. the international cycling union has given paralympic athletes seven weeks to prepare for their world championships in los angeles. the march date was only confirmed today. for it to be such last—minute, it's literally seven weeks, i mean for athletes preparing? that's not really time to do it. organisations and teams to sort out logistics, visas, transport, hotels, flights, you name it, it'sjust a bit crazy. i don't know whether there's a motive for it but it seems a bit strange that it's so late in the day. after almost 150 years of horse—racing, kempton park is set to be closed to make way for around 3,000 new homes, helping raise £100 million towards a £500 million ten—year investment programme. should the proposal go ahead, in 2021 at the earliest,
10:42 pm
the king george vi chase would move to sandown and newmarket would benefit from a new all—weather track. kempton‘s owner thejockey club says the proposal is "for the long—term good of british racing". that's all from sportsday. from all of us at the bbc sports centre, good night. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us, tomorrow. with me are laura hughes, political correspondent at the daily telegraph and jack blanchard, political editor at the daily mirror. tomorrow's front pages, starting with: the daily telegraph says that labour's immigration policy
10:43 pm
is in "disarray" after a rapid u—turn on free movement byjeremy corbyn. the i focuses on the labour leader's comments on capping wages. "corbyn‘s fat cat attack" is the headline. mr corbyn is pictured on the ft‘s front page, but the paper leads on a call by city bosses to delay full brexit so companies can get used to new trading arrangements. the guard in pictures claire hollingworth, the veterinary war correspondence he broke the news of the nazi invasion of poland, who has died at the age of 105. theresa may's senior aides have privately criticised the senior aides at the nhs. the death of 7—year—old katie rough in york is the lead story for the metro. and finally the mirror has the latest evidence in the trial of ian stewart,
10:44 pm
who's accused of killing his dominating many of the front pages isjeremy dominating many of the front pages is jeremy corbyn‘s dominating many of the front pages isjeremy corbyn‘s speech in peterborough. both of you had the pleasure of getting on the train to head over there. jack, as political editor at the mirror, was it worth it? it always is, how much news he has created over the course of a 15 minute speech. he is on the front page of almost every newspaper. 0k, but the front page of the telegraph, "corbyn‘s migration policy in disarray, labour leaderforced "corbyn‘s migration policy in disarray, labour leader forced into rapid u—turn". disarray, labour leader forced into rapid u-turn". was that what he was seeking? clearly not. it is fair to say the day hasn't gone quite as they would have hoped. this is perhaps a bit harsh to say it is in disarray but once again, the communication coming out of jeremy corbyn's office has not been as good as it should have been. journalists were briefed one line la st journalists were briefed one line last night about what he was going
10:45 pm
to say. when he stood up and said that line he said with these extra caveats, suddenly added on into the speech that nobody had bothered to mention were going to be their last night and it changed the tone of what he was saying and left people confused about his position. aurora, this is your headline, you read this story. it's a bit out of order according to jack. —— laura. story. it's a bit out of order according to jack. -- laura. there has been some serious confusion today. all journalists has been some serious confusion today. alljournalists thought this morning, jeremy corbyn is saying the labour party is going to take a tougher stance on uncontrolled migration. they will say they are not wedded to free movement, that is what we were told. but then jeremy corbyn went on the airwaves this morning as did a series of interviews where he seemed to distance himself from his own words that had been briefed by his own office. they added... before, we we re office. they added... before, we were told he would say we're not wedded to the policy when we went to peter brooke, line added "we are not
10:46 pm
ruling it out and it might be necessary if we want to have continued to have access to the single market" —— we went to peterborough. keir starmer, the shadow brexit secretary was not in peterborough with us, that was quite odd in itself. over the weekend, tom watson, the deputy leader said we did not know the stance for labour. the whole area seems to be confused. labour mps the whole area seems to be confused. labourmps are the whole area seems to be confused. labour mps are still unhappy with it. union leaders who watched jeremy corbyn to start speaking to the concerns of a lot of their voters. —— who wantjeremy corbyn. a little birdie told me that keir starmer, who is the brexit secretary, didn't have wind of this speech on brexit from jeremy corbyn before the speech was made. i mean, those sorts of things do happen. laughter i don't know whether that is the case but it is possible. 0k. the bigger picture is the jeremy corbyn has been mooted to make a big speech oi'i has been mooted to make a big speech on brexit today, to make clear what his position is. and we are coming away from it and people still aren't clear what his position is. that
10:47 pm
cannot be a good thing. that's not great, is it? the financial times. another big pillar of his speech wasn't just brexit but another big pillar of his speech wasn'tjust brexit but it was wages and the disparity between ftse 100 and the disparity between ftse100 ceos earning megabucks at the top and folk on the shop floor. corbyn and folk on the shop floor. corbyn and wage gap, laura, the word appears again, confusion. confusion. we all got very excited this morning. is itjust that we all got very excited this morning. is it just that you we all got very excited this morning. is itjust that you guys aren't very bright? laughter is that what this is about? you just don't get it? that's very harsh! we all got very excited this morning because he went on the airwaves again and said, quite drastically, although he has said it before when he was a backbench mp, he would like to see a cap for the top earners in this country. which went down like a... it didn't go down very well. his own advisers said it was a ludicrous idea. it wouldn't work.
10:48 pm
could lead to a brain drain because people would leave the country. lots of mps said that's not fair. and it might be illegal, by the way! that little matter. i spoke to in mp earlier who made a good point, interesting, why should a working—class kid, who goes on to become a professional footballer, and pays his taxes, doesn't do anything to avoid paying taxes, why should he be penalised when wealthy young people will inherit a land of their wealthy parents who inherited it from their wealthy grandparents? you are not solving the problem. confused, jack? it certainly was confused. this was more confused than the immigration one. this is one step up with the confusion. no doubt when jeremy corbyn was on bbc radio, he was talking about this idea of having a maximum wage, that is what he was talking about. as laura says, you floated the idea a few years ago when he wasn't the idea —— leader of the labour party. he did several interviews. we went
10:49 pm
to peterborough this afternoon and there is no mention of it. he talks about other ways of reducing executive pay, which, by the way, is far too high executive pay, which, by the way, is fartoo high and executive pay, which, by the way, is far too high and does need to come down. yes. this idea wasn't in there. when he was asked about it afterwards he said, i quite preferred as the way of doing it through pay ratios where bosses can't be paid more than 20 times more than their lowest worker. that is fine but it wasn't what he was talking about this morning. this morning. labour have to have a clear message because people do not follow these arguments slowly through the day in the way that laura and i are paid to. most people willjust get a vague idea at the end of the day of what it is and unfortunately the only message coming through from the papers once again tomorrow is that it is confused. is it? the guardian, corbyn steps up assault on fat cat salaries. the takeaway, laura, there, is as far as the guardian is concerned, he has put the disparity between the mega rich at the top and working people at the bottom on the agenda. that is the takeaway. all
10:50 pm
the other stuff, detail, agenda. that is the takeaway. all the otherstuff, detail, is agenda. that is the takeaway. all the other stuff, detail, is chaff. he's got that on there. that is basically what the leave campaign did in brexit and what trump did. does that make sense or was that rubbish? it makes sense. they lead on this, the headline, you are right, he has got the headline he would have wanted but they go on to the detail but today wasn't great. forjeremy corbyn. it is interesting because we have had there is a strategy that corbyn‘s team have launched, which is to take a trump style approach and, sort of, come out with these big statements. and evenif out with these big statements. and even if they are not viable, it will get the attention of the public. and, actually, they might be quite popular because a lot of people will look at that headline and say, yes, they are paid too much. the hardest thing in the opposition is being heard. the worst thing that could happen is you become irrelevant. jeremy corbyn has inserted himself into the news today and although it might not have been done perfectly, a lot of people, they would get a
10:51 pm
vague impression, jeremy corbyn is against high pay. that is all they will get at them today and that is not a bad place for them to be in competitive last week when there was i'io competitive last week when there was no sign of jeremy competitive last week when there was no sign ofjeremy corbyn. —— compared to last week. the times, corbyn gath derails bid to relaunch his leadership. —— gaff. as political editor of the mirror, left—leaning paper, how can it be that the leader of the biggest political party in europe, 400,000 members, money awash, is irrelevant? how can that be? how did that happen? i don't think it is that he's irrelevant,... happen? i don't think it is that he's irrelevant, . .. you happen? i don't think it is that he's irrelevant,... you said he was trying to great relevance? whenever you are the leader of the opposition, that is the challenge you face. especially when we are quadra years away from a general election. you are a long way from power —— you are four years. and he is not doing well in the polls. it
10:52 pm
is not doing well in the polls. it isa is not doing well in the polls. it is a long time before it is even possible jeremy corbyn could be prime minister. it is difficult to make yourself part of the news. to make yourself part of the news. to make yourself part of the news. to make yourself heard. you don't want headlines like corbyn gaff derails anything, but it's better than not being talked about. maybe. laura, writing for the daily telegraph on the other side of the political spectrum, are you guysjust the other side of the political spectrum, are you guys just sitting in the newsroom, thinking, "yes, another corbyn speech, we can have a 90, another corbyn speech, we can have a go, we can have a laugh". never! they totally are! no! you are, aren't you? is you love that won't give him a chance. no, we do. a lot of our readers will look at this, and they will be... a lot of other people will vaguely hear it and think they are paid too much. there you go. yes, these bosses earn too much. that is what they wanted but he should have been talking a bit more about the nhs
10:53 pm
today. well, here we go. that's a nice segue, laura, into the times. number ten planes nhs chief hospital chaos. find a scapegoat, potentially. —— blames the nhs chief for hospital chaos. there seems to bea for hospital chaos. there seems to be a row over money, as always. the head of the nhs apparently is unhappy that theresa may in public has said you have had this money in 2015 and we had an agreement and you had this but other departments are not getting the cash injections at this stage. it's winter, is normal for the nhs to be struggling at this time. they are not moving. simon stephens is coming out and making some quite strong statements before mps. he is in front of a select committee tomorrow where he has criticised the government for things like this, bus passes. he says we need more money at number ten says he's not getting it. he is defending the workers he represents in the nhs. he is a civil servant, not a
10:54 pm
political figure and he is a very experienced manager and very respected. this appears to be an attempt by certain people at number ten to undermine him. perhaps because they are worried about what he will say before mps tomorrow afternoon when he appears before the select committee. the nhs winter crisis will be front and centre of that hearing and people will be watching him very closely for any sign that this is as bad as some people think it is. senior people at numberten people think it is. senior people at number ten briefing against this quy: number ten briefing against this guy, trying to undermine him and this is something of a pattern for downing street. since this new team has come in with theresa may, we have seen a succession of senior people walk out of theirjobs from ivan rogers, the ambassador to the eu, are there were things against him, mark carney, the governor of the bank of england will be stepping down sooner than we had thought. jim o'neill, a treasury minister advising them on the northern powerhouse, walked out within days. there seems to be a clash between
10:55 pm
these senior figures, who have been often quite good at theirjobs. finally, the daily telegraph. a hero of mine. claire hollingworth. she happened to have the scoop of, i don't know, the last 300 years. the beginning of world war ii. she was in thejob for beginning of world war ii. she was in the job for about three weeks, i think? something like three days. she said, i'm going to do this, she got the scoop that all of us would only ever dream of within three days. what is remarkable about her, when she was doing this job at the telegraph sent her to poland, at that time, women were still, it was difficult with... to have these big careers. they were told, get married, go home and have children. even more impressive she managed to do all of this at a time not like now, when women weren't brave enough, and she put to bed that i did that women couldn't be foreign correspondence. inspirational. she
10:56 pm
was correspondence. inspirational. she was 27 years old at the time and we nt was 27 years old at the time and went driving about the front line in a british embassy car. she found these german tanks, ready to invade, and came back, got the scoop, front page of the telegraph, first big story, three days later the tanks came rolling in and she was the one that the british embassy the invasion had happened. they didn't believe her. she had to put the phone out, so they could hear the tanks going past and the war had started. properjournalism. it beats standing ina started. properjournalism. it beats standing in a field listening to jeremy corbyn. laughter rest in peace, and laura, jack, it's been good having you in the night. don't forget all the front pages are online on the bbc news website where you can read a detailed review of the papers. it's all there for you, seven days a week. and you can see us there too, with each night's edition of the papers being posted on the page shortly after we've finished. we're on iplayer, too.
10:57 pm

10:59 pm
